Seattle Seahawks Ranked 27th On Forbes List Of Team Values


The annual list Forbes of the 50 most valuable sports franchises in the world is out, and there should be no surprise that the NFL is the dominant league in terms of franchise values. Sure, the top few spots are all soccer (like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United) but after that it’s almost all NFL.

The Seahawks check in at a very respectable #27 overall. That’s also #17in the NFL, putting them right smack in the middle of the league. Not bad considering the team’s geographical home.

Here’s a list of the NFL teams that are over the Seahawks. I included their overall rank, as well their listed value:

5. Dallas Cowboys – $2.1 billion

6. New England Patriots – $1.63 billion

8. Washington Redskins – $1.6 billion

9. New York Giants – $1.47 billion

13. Houston Texans – $1.3 billion

14. New York Jets – $1.28 billion

15. Philadelphia Eagles – $1.26 billion

16. Chicago Bears – $1.19 billion

17. San Francisco 49ers – $1.175 billion

18. Green Bay Packers – $1.161 billion

19. Baltimore Ravens – $1.157 billion

20. Indianapolis Colts – $1.15 billion

22. Denver Broncos – $1.13 billion

24. Pittsburgh Steelers – 1.1 billion

25. Miami Dolphins – $1.06 billion

26. Carolina Panthers – $1.048 billion

27. Seattle Seahawks – $1.04 billion

It’s interesting that above the Seahawks you’ll find just just 3 baseball teams and only 1 NBA team. That should show you just how much the NFL is king in this country.

      maybe, but their information is usually pretty accurate for this type of stuff.

        Is it really? Wasn’t it Forbes that had the value of the Mariners off by around $500 million when a valuation was done for Chris Larson’s divorce?

  • skeletony

    Man…I know we are all the way up in the corner that everyone outside of WA hates but how are teams like the Panthers worth more than the Seahawks?!

    • in_my_opinion86

      That was exactly my thought. I’m OK with just about every other team listed being “more valuable” than the Hawks. But that PANTHERS? That’s going to change right soon.
